New! CVE Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for CVEs has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. CVEs that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Description

The Bluetooth HCI ACL dissector in Wireshark 1.10.x before 1.10.2 does not properly maintain a certain free list, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted packet that is not properly handled by the wmem_block_alloc function in epan/wmem/wmem_allocator_block.c.
